a pulitzer prize and work, writing on georg george h.w. bush. >> and caro, a two-time pulitzer prize winning author and wrote about lyndon johnson, his fourth volume, the passage of power, is set to come out this may, i am pleased to have them here for this important discussion really about men and power, about the power of the office and how those two things come together. i begin with barack obama. what did you go in search of? >> trying to find out to the extent anyone could what makes obama tick, and i think we all know if you support obama or oppose him there is something different about the way he seems or prepares for his reelection from what anyone expected four years ago when he was making his astonishing debut on the national scene, so trying to pars out whether the disappointment in him was inevitable because just a mismatch between what he symbolized in his election and the kinds of problems he had to deal with or whether it was something intentional he has had done right or wrong and trying to answer the question, has he been laying a long-term plan whose subtlety we are only se
judgment would be george w. bush was unusual in being a better second term president than a first term president, i think reagan was worst in the second term and i think clinton worst in the second term the hope is that obama like george w. bush in this way only would learn and continue this elf lucian doris is talkable about, reflecting of things that haven't worked, and i think the strongest lesson of his learning there position is positioning the economic argument which he has done in the last six or eight months in a way that gives him some strength for the election year. >> and yet you suggest in this article that the one thing that doesn't seem to come natural to him is to speak about economic issues. to explain them, to be able to identify with people who are suffering because of contemporary economic issues. >> yes, i had really interesting to interviews with mondale and hart, mondale i talked to him after the tragic death of his the daughter eleanor and something he learned from seeing people on the iron range, and other places how devastating it was when people lost their job
. some of whom you might like. some of whom you don't. i'm not a fan of george w. bush and therefore i was horrified by some of the things that john wrote about presidential power. i assume that many of you in this room were no fans of bill clinton or barack obama in terms of their capacity to be commander in chief. i think all of us are right. that you wouldn't select out these people to make the decisions of peace and war, life and death. shift to the financial crisis. one of the most interesting books on that was written by a reporter for "the wall street journal." and one of the points he made is that the decisions again, whether you like them or not, the decisions were made by the head of the fed that is ben bernanke and secretary of treasury pahlsson, who wants to stipulate and know something about the economy. george w. bush basically is next to nowhere to be seen in this book. and nobody in the reviews has suggested that he got it wrong. and frankly i'm more re-assured by bernanke or other heads of the fed, like more than bernanke than let's say either bush or obama whom i supp
by george w. bush in 2005. he has a b.a. from brigham young university and his j.d. is from the university of virginia school of law. most notably he and his wife are the proud parents of six children and the proud grandparents of four. we're thankful to have the judge out here since he was just at stanford two weeks ago for the jay ruben clark conference. we're glad that something could entice him to come back a second time. >> thank you very much. it's a pleasure to be here. my congratulations to the conference organizers. i wish you hadn't remarked that i was out here two weeks ago in light of mr. gray's comment that the d.c. circuit is woefully underworked. so good morning. for those of us who are familiar with gathering of the federalist society, this is the obligatory panel on the part of the constitution that seems to be of the greatest interest to federalist society event organizers everywhere. when a conservative administration is in power. those three enigmatic and inviting words in the constitution quote, the executive power close quote. as the moderator of this distinguished pa
be appointed by president george w. bush. in february of 2001 in his first joint address, president bush said that racial profiling is "kwong and we will end it in america." we take the title from the promise he made 11 years ago. in june 2001, senator rus fine gold held the senate's second and most recent hearing on racial profiling. i was there. there was bipartisan agreement about the need toent racial profiling and then came 9/11. in the national truma that followed, civil liberties came face-to-face with national security. arab americans and american muslims faced religious profiling to take one example, the special registration program targeted arab and muslim visitors and they are facing deportation. at the time i called for them to be terminated. terrorism experts concluded that special registration waved homeland security in resources and in fact alienated patriotic americans and american muslims. 80,000 people registered and more than 13,000 were placed in deportation proceedings. even today many innocent arabs and muslims faced deportation. how many terrorists were identified by th
and following george h.w. bush, president clinton kept the framework in place for review by omb of regulations and that has continued to this day. >> i want to make one more comment about this point because john mentioned it and i looked something up before i came, a quote, so i wanted to use it. just like a law student in class. so this question of what happens when jefferson becomes president and the cooperation of the legislature, so john marshall who personally did not get along with jefferson was asked what did he think jefferson would be like as president? he wrote a letter where he said he thought jefferson was going to be somewhat dangerous as president and he said why? because jefferson is going to quote, unquote, buy himself a house of representatives which would increase his personal power, but marshall always thought it would lead to the weakening was office of the president to do that and it came to fruition in the years after jefferson which is if the president so closely cooperates with the house and uses a political party system to do that, we start to -- we might start to appr
country in this turmoil. >> let me add a couple additional things. when george w. bush was president, he was going overseas on a trip, somewhere i don't remember, what about or where he was going, but there was an article. a columnist in "the washington post" who wrote a column about the president going overseas. and what he said was that for the next period, however long it was, the president was going to step out to step out of his role as head of government to be head of state. i was teaching at the time and i asked my students, what jumps out at you about that? i got the answers you might expect. if he's going to be functioning not wearing his one hat, but his other hat as the head of state, he will be talking about basic rights and fly over rights and trade agreements and so forth. i said no. that's not the answer. the president is not the head of government. we have three separate and equal branches of government and most of the major powers of government whether it's going to war are raising taxes or creating programs or deciding what to spend are congressional counts. i think thi
george w. bush after 9/11. which, i think were solid statements of constitutional principle. particularly when it came to those adherence of the muslim faith, that our war is not against this islamic religion, but against those who would corrupt it, distort it, and misuse it in the name of terrorism. and i thank you for your testimony. congressman judy chu represents the 32nd district in california, since 2009. she was the first chinese american woman ever elected to american congress. she chairs the congressional asian pacific caucus, colonel served in the california state assembly, and we're honored you're here today. please proceed. >> thank you, senator. as chair of the congressional asian pacific american caucus, i'm grateful for the opportunity to speak here today, about ending racial profiling in america. asian americans and pacific islanders like other minority communities have spent the significant effects of racial profiling lout american history. from the chinese exclusion act to the japanese american internment and the post-9/11 racial profiling of arabs, muslims, and south af
of golf. and then vacations. george w. bush spent time at his ranch over days in office. not to mention the 170 days in camp david. ronald reagan spent almost a year near santa barbara. those trips were a top down directive. in her book "reagan: an american story" adriana bosh talked about something earlier in their time at the white house. deever found the president doing his schedule which didn't include any ranch time. deever said that was because of the press being critical of his time outside of warkds. his answer. you can tell me a lot of things and i'll do them. but you're not going to tell me the more i get to the ranch. the more often i get to the ranch, the longer i'll live. being on vacation doesn't mean the same thing to a president or presidential candidate to the rest of us fop have the job is to be always plugged in orรง rey to take the call. the black briefcase with the launch codes never more than a few feet away from a president. which is why no one should begrudge mitt romney jet skiing or the president golfing. the health of the country is in some part a function of
said is he plans to return to the same policies that george w. bush advanced during his eight years that were one of the most stagnant players. drive trillion that will go to the top 1%. these are the trickle down philosophies that didn't get us anywhere and didn't promise much for the future. >> to get us off of the unemployment. >> that are would be nice. >> we were showing the viewers on that last full screen, we have been oscillating the range and if we expect that same space for the next few months, around 8%, does it make things easier for mitt romney, things are simply not working. >> for does and to a certain extent this is the responsibility of the obama campaign. he's in ohio and ohio's unemployment rate is well under the national average in the six range. >> 7.3. >> 7.3, okay. in virginia it's way down in the 5.5% elf range or something. there places where the policies made a huge impact. in my district we add 3,000 new jobs at the ford facilities this year. we have a general electric appliance. more than 1,000 new jobs. there places where selectively the economy is bette
with the exception of ron paul, all came forward and said let's do exactly what george w. bush did and call it something different. and it seems to me the republican party at this point are only good at two things redistribution of wealth to the top 2% and convincing social conservatives that this is a good thing. suzannea is calling us from illinois. good morning. >> hi. i have advise for david axelrod. i live in illinois and i have had robo calls saying terrible things about the president. if my son would have answered the phone, you know, he loves the president. they talk about it in school. my 9-year-old school -- >> can i ask what terrible things the robo calls were saying? >> i have had normal things before, but this is like obama is a traitor, he's coming to get you. and i blame the republican party for getting calls like that. i think it's public harassment. >> i agree. but citizens united you are going to see a lot more of that especially in the swing states. and if mitt romney gets to have donald trump doing robo calls for him, then we get to call it what it i
since 1988 when george h.w. bush carried it that year. look, we see the likes of joe biden now spending a lot of time in pennsylvania. let's not forget, go back to 2008, wolf, when president obama back in 2008 said that very ill-fated phrase. he said people are clinging to their guns and their religion. that is something that will not play very well in pennsylvania. but also in pennsylvania it also shows that in fact when you look at these numbers right here as far as television advertising right now, we've seen barack obama is spending money right now. more than $3 million right now, wolf, he is spending on tv advertising so far to carry his message. >> yeah. he doesn't want to take any chances. by the way, he said those less than artful words out in san francisco. >> he did. but it carried back. >> everybody heard it immediately all over the place. thanks very much. >>> take a look at this. we have some live pictures of the president of the united states in sandusky, ohio. there he is at the top of your screen in the middle there. he's shaking hands, meeting with folks. the president
american heroes as honorary co-chairman of his veterans coalition. former president george h.w. bush and former candidate bob dole leading the group called veterans and military families for romney. romney says the vets and their families sacrificed so much for our country and if elected president, he will always remember to honor their service and give them the opportunities and care that they deserve. polls show romney with a strong lead over president obama with military voters. >> and he's seen his votes shrink a lot since primary night and there are claims of voter suppression but democrat charlie rangel attacking his opponent for challenging the primary results. >> you can't just call people crooks and saying that they're committing illegal acts. don't knock the system. it's all that we have. >> new york state senator adriano espaillat calling for a recount. he hasn't officially asked for a new election yet but is preserving that option in court. >> all right, alec baldwin's dance with the idea of running for mayor of new york city may not be through. that's according to hi
had played 100 rounds of golf. then there's the subject of vacations. george w. bush spent all or part of 490 days at his ranch in texas over eight years in office. not to mention the 487 days at camp david according to knoller. ronald reagan spent almost a year near santa barbara. in her book "reagan: an american story" adriana bosh talked about something earlier in their time at the white house. deever found the president doing inspecting his schedule which the president lamented didn't include ranch time. deever said that was because of the press being critical of his time outside of washington. his answer. you can tell me a lot of things and i'll do them. but you're not going to tell me the more i get to the ranch. i'm convinced the more auch often i get to the ranch the longer i live. i'm going to the ranch. you can put it in there now. being on vacation doesn't mean the same thing to a president or presidential candidate to the rest of us fop have the job is to always be plugged in or ready to take a call or make a decision. the black briefcase with the launch codes never more th
could show you different data. equipment software share gdp is just about back to its george w. bush level. you may want to attack him. but we're back to where we were before the downturn begin. i think that's pretty good. we have a lot of sectors of the economy that have a huge amount of excess capacity. >> we have this ism manufacturing report. inside that report was a huge deflation of prices. dean, i worry about deflation. in fact, i worry about worldwide deflation. in fact, i worry about global recession. i'm not quite there yet. but i'm worried about it. if any of that stuff is remotely true, we're going to see it in tomorrow's jobs number. >> larry, last time i've been on your show, you were worried about inflation. you have to make up your mind. >> i know. i've been watching deflation for the last two or three months. >> last time, you were worried about high oil prices. come on, one way or the other. both can't be a problem. >> which is it? dave goldman -- >> we have weak growth around the world. it's not the u.s. determining the world market in oil. we've seen a slowdown in
close. interesting in the point when john kerry was running he outraised george w. bush at the time. >> she did work for kerry but there are gripes but the party is uniting around mitt romney and especially on the back of the supreme court nomination where they raised a huge amount of money in 24 hours and he has a big boost and sounds like she is adjusting expectations downward and it sounds like romney a hundred million dollar month with rnc money and not including superpacs. we know this is a billion dollar election. this is going to be big money. >> big money on both sides. >> big money on both sides. >> i thought her comment was important. it's easy to say, oh, you know, some guy who is in trouble running a bank is bundling for the other guy. the problem you had a guy on your side too. the bundlers tend to be very wealthy and very connected. often wall street people. >> exactly. as you pointed out neither party has a monopoly on virtue or vice. for every time there is a co corzne. >> a verdict in the case of a man who beat up the priest that he says abused him nearly three deca

[ inaudible ] >> if you would turn your microphone on, it's in that box in front of you there. >> thank you very much, senator durbin, for inviting me here today. i'm delighted to be here. let me just summarize briefly my written statement. the first point i make is that care has to be taken in defining the term racial profiling, and in particular, i think that it's important to bear in mind that racial profiling is disparate treatment on the basis of race. good police activities that happen to have a disparate impact on the basis of race are not racial profiling. the second point i make is that the amount of racial profiling that occurs is frequently exaggerated, and that care needs to be take
clinton. and marc thiessen who's a former speech writer for president george w. bush. there you have the campaign spokesperson, simon, coming out and saying expressly that the president believes it's a penalty, he disagrees with the supreme court that it's a tax and suggesting that they never referred to it as a tax. now, look, i want to show you what the president's lawyer argued to the u.s. supreme court. it's not like chief justice roberts pulled this out of his ear. this is the president's lawyer in front of the supreme court, okay? ready? follow me on this. justices, it is a tax law, fully integrated into the tax system that triggers tax consequences for noncompliance. megyn: simon, this is the president through his lawyer telling the supreme court it is valid as a tax. so are they being straight with the american people? and now sending ben lebolt, among others, to come out and say it's not a tax? >> well, let's look at what the architect of this strategy said about -- megyn: no, no. no, no. before you go to romney, before you go to romney let's stay on president obama. we'll g

more in the debates than george w. bush did. he did not end up winning the election. >> debates matter but they're not everything. he is right, the debates this particular campaign season are going to be, i think, influential. people want to see these two guys, the president and mitt romney, together, talking about the issues, laying out some of their plans. mitt romney has been specific on paper but he hasn't been specificin public and speaking. j.r., i want to know, did you guys consider syria/russia on this list? >> sure. i think any sort of major national security, foreign policy event that you can't plan for or even kind of major domestic issue that you can't plan for. that can be a variety of things across the world. and here, every four years we invariably have something like that and there's no prediction what it's going to be or what the political impact is going to be. don't forget, four years ago there was that moment in august when russia invaded georgia. and that was part of the reason why biden was put on the ticket because at the moment, foreign policy was seen in august

the opportunity i was referring i remember that george w. bush in 2000 when he was running made some statement -- i know i'm paraphrasing horribly here -- when he said these people in congress ought to realize you can't balance the budget on the backs of the poor or something. he differed from the republican leadership on congress. this was an opportunity for romney to say you know, let's just be honest with the american people right? what this is if you don't buy -- if you can afford insurance and you don't buy it, you're going to have to pay a penalty. there was an opportunity to show some independence. >> right except the problem was it was -- what would otherwise have been a high-minded move. this is about semantics. what it is what it is. it was undermined by the fact it was a defensive thing. it was fighting a long-ago battle about what he did in massachusetts. i think a lot of people seem to be under the impression john roberts went in and changed the legislation somehow. it is all about him trying to find a way to
